Knowing how to help breast cancer survivors in your community recover best, following surgery and radiotherapy, is rewarding work for therapists.
However many of the common impairments require customized palpation skills and these differ to those used for most other medical conditions - for example lymphoedema skills do not translate well to managing problematic lumpectomy dissection scar tissue.
This online course is designed for therapists wanting to provide assessment and treatments for breast cancer survivors. It will suit therapists with PT, OT oncology massage or lymphoedema training.
This short online course will help you develop hands on skills in palpation, diagnosis and tight tissue release.
These skills will make positive changes to people after breast cancer who are experiencing limited arm movement, musculo-skeletal pain and weakness.
THURSDAY/FRIDAY SESSIONS depending on where you are in the world.
